Roberto Auser – Faceless Future EP

Somewhere early January Roberto Auser and I went by car to Rotterdam…during the way back he played me some demo’s he had been working on… afterwards he sent me all the tracks to listen to again… from my initial idea of doing a 7″ release it went to three 7″s to a 12″ EP… and the last one is now at the pressing plant…

This EP is entitled “Faceless Future” and contains 6 tracks with pure analogue old school minimal electronics… from rhythm based elektro tracks for the dancefloor to more experimental soundscapes…

The record pays tribute to pioneers of industrial music and early experimental elektro such as early Cabaret Voltaire and Front 242 but also to the more modern new wave of minimal electronics as re-invented by Le Syndicat Electronique…

“Faceless Future” is expected before summer and comes in a silk screened sleeve… of course printed by myself and Roberto Auser himself at Kapitaal in Utrecht… you can pre-order it here…

To kill the time until the release I uploaded a video of one track and a full track preview of another one… both are here below… enjoy!

Owlbites live at Kapitaal, Utrecht

owlbitesThis thursday 21st of April there is the monthly mini event at Kapitaal at which Radio Resistencia is recorded for Intergalactic FM and Concertzender… live on stage will be Owlbites from Utrecht…

Owlbites is an experimental new wave project… although one side of the project is more ambient orientated there is also the more new wave side of things… think (early) Tuxedomoon for example to get an impression… and this thursday we will be treated  with this…

Onont Kombar @ Radio Resistencia

RR_logoThis Thursday (24th of March) there is new Radio Resistencia / Enfant Terrible at Kapitaal mini-event / radio session… live performing will be Onont Kombar… this will be the first live show ever by this Dutch artist…

Onont Kombar is playing around with noisy synth sounds and rough rhythms… sort of minimal synth but harsher…and quite dark too… out soon will be his debut as a split LP with Enfant Terrible family member Neugeborene Nachtmusik… on a new label called Ordo Viatorum… which is run by those two musicians themselves…

Below is a video of one of the Onont Kombar tracks from this record… this video was done by Dutch visual artist Anouk van der Wegen

The radio session starts at 20.00 hour and ends at 23.00 hour … the entrance is free and the drinks are cheap and nice… for directions see the Kapitaal website

 

Printed matters

This weekend I have been printing the art prints for the upcoming Neurobit record on Vrystaete and the sleeves for the new Gooiland Elektro compilation… both records are expected late March…

The art prints for the Neurobit record are designed by Sasj and are geometric patterns… originally the design was intended to have 3 layers but in the end I decided to only go for 2 layers… less is more and as the third layer was a big square with patterns in it this would have been quite hard to do with silk screen printing…

The design is printed in three color variations… so 50 prints of each variation… see above… when (pre)ordering the record you can state your wish for a specific color combination…

As always these prints where done at the printing facilities of Kapitaal in Utrecht…

A post with photos of the Gooiland Elekro sleeves will follow in the next days…

Radio Resistencia with live Murw

RR_logoThis Thursday (25th of February) a new Radio Resistencia session wil take place at Kapitaal Utrecht… live on stage we have Murw from Utrecht… he was present on the Kamp Holland compilation I released some years ago… around that time he also performed live for Radio Resistencia… back then quite a noisy improvisation site with live electronics…

This time most likely the live set will be more dance music orientated… this is a new direction for Murw… he is experimenting with live techno… still improvised at some points… and also still present is the musicians’ interest in lo-fi electronic sounds… so some chip tune sounds and elements will be present… but also some more pounding techno tunes…

We start around 20.00 hours CET and end around 23.00 CET… entrance is free… as always… I will spin some records and so will dj Alacidus…

Here is a bit of Murw live at the Gransnapolsky Festival from a few weeks ago…
